Lagrange is a desktop GUI client for browsing Geminispace. It offers modern conveniences familiar from web browsers, such as smooth scrolling, inline image viewing, multiple tabs, visual themes, Unicode fonts, bookmarks, history, and page outlines.
Like Gemini, Lagrange has been designed with minimalism in mind. It depends on a small number of essential libraries. It is written in C and uses SDL for hardware-accelerated graphics. OpenSSL is used for secure communications.
- Beautiful typography using Unicode fonts
- Autogenerated page style and Unicode icon for each Gemini domain
- Smart suggestions when typing the URL — search bookmarks, history, identities
- Sidebar for page outline, managing bookmarks and identities, and viewing history
- Multiple tabs and split view
- Identity management — create and use TLS client certificates
- Audio playback: MP3, Ogg Vorbis, WAV
- And more! Open `about:help` in the app, or see help.gmi
On macOS you can install via a Homebrew tap:
$ brew tap skyjake/lagrange
$ brew install lagrange
On openSUSE Tumbleweed:
sudo zypper install lagrange
On other platforms (e.g., *BSD), you'll need to compile the source tarball (CMake).
- Added UI language: Polish.
- Footer buttons: easy access to the most relevant actions on error pages and inside Gempub books.
- Revised New Identity dialog; using an identity instantly after creation.
- Usability of the Identities sidebar: URLs where an identity is used can be accessed via context menu, highlight all identities that may be used on the current domain.
- Exporting identities: show certificate and private key in PEM format in a new tab.
- Multi-line text input and word wrapping. All input fields can expand vertically.
- Input query response length indicator.
- Animate showing/hiding of sidebars and dialogs.
- Added new Emoji/symbols font "Smol Emoji", removed Symbola.
- Setting for custom symbol (fallback) font (TrueType only).
- Added keybindings for split view modes.
- Added --url-or-search command line option.
- (v1.5.1) Updated resources: UI translations and Smol Emoji.
- (v1.5.2) Bug fixes and tweaks: pasting a certificate/key in Import Identity; set StartupWMClass; NFC normalize page contents; recognize more link icons; updated Smol Emoji.

Flatpak applications run in a sandbox that limits their access to the rest of the system. At the moment, Lagrange has not been fully adapted to use Flatpak Portal APIs, so the following are known issues:
- Unable to open HTTP/HTTPS links via the default browser.
- Multiple instances of the application overwrite each other's data.
